Droog Lab has been quietly pottering away with its ambitious plunge into studying new possibilities for design.  In Russia they have come up with Fantastical Investments - a fascinating albeit fictitious take on that country's consumption habits. Over in the UK, fashion designer Stefanie Nieuwenhuyse turns woodchips into couture, and in Bangalore students are attempting to get local inhabitants back on their bikes.
